Pink Ribbon and Blue Ribbon

Hello!
I have a couple of  things to share with you today
and before I go with my post, I am happy to have the stamp sets from Magnolia that called Pink Ribbon and Blue Ribbon , which they are supported for the breast cancer and prostate cancer.
and they are both Tilda and Edwin in the cute pose about "See no evil - Hear no evil - Speak no evil"

and here are my work with them;



The Pink and Blue Ribbon has three images and they are also in mini world size, so I decided not only making a card but I would love to give someone a small treat, I am using all image for minis on the favor box.



All images are water coloring with distress ink, and due the power of my eyes I need lots of forgiveness if I am doing so much messy on the minis. But I have a bunch of fun to play with the super cute images.

Now, is Edwin turns ..



I also have a stamp set from StampinÚp! about the breast cancer, it was years ago but I think they are so match with my set.




For the cards I choose "Talk no evil" nothing special reason for that but they are my fave pose from the rest of all.
I am using a acrylic paint for the panel and accent behind the mini images.

and here are all the list of ingredients used :
Neenah desert storm cs , Neenah natural cs, Mama Elephant pigment ink ( Moonlight, Brown Sugar, Dark Storm) , Clear embossing powder, Martha Stewart acrylic paint satin - Cloud, Crackle paint (Picket Fence, Old Paper) , Distrees dry glitters, Mayart twine.

Hope you guys will enjoy my work today and let's us support for the good cause!
Thank you so much for stopping here and Have a best day!

Love,

Waiting for Christmas

Hello dear readers,

Hope you guys are well :)
Today I have create a shabby Christmas card that wrapped out the memory of our childhood ..
and I present this one as an inspiration card for Magnolia Only Challenge at Ribbon Girl :)

not too much words, here is my card:



Again I am using my Magnolia stamp from the latest collection : "Waiting for Christmas" and today I present Tilda with terumpet ..
all of us ever have that feeling .. exciting to wait the Christmas eve!!!
When choir were so beautiful, lots of presents .. the most wonderful time of the year!

This time I won't let my Tilda stay on the plain background, so I try to play with my water coloring to paint some shabby flowers around her.

The only one decoration I use is a gorgeous charm that given from my dear Mary from The Ribbon Girl, I so love with that music charm.


I use lots of sparkling medium on my card, they are my silver signo gell pen, clear Wink of Stella,  my metal pen - green and finishing it with pearl glimmer mist.

oh how I wish I can be a good photographer so I can shoot all the sparkling!!!


and here the closer look for the Rocking horse .. so cute, right ??
I cut a piece of Pion Design paper with the DooHickey kit and give some Snow tex here and there.

recently I love to paint some flowers as a background beside painting a scene so I try for bigger flowers on my card ahead.. what do you think ?
but before it may be I have to learn more ..

I thank you so much for visiting me today and hope to see you again soon!

Love,

Warmest whises

Hi everyone!

Today I am back again :D
and this is my first Holiday Card for this year . yey!!
I am ready to warming up and for my first kick I present the Warmest wishes card to all my dear readers ;)


 
I am using "Star Sky Tilda"for my focal image and I keep everything just flat because I want to sent it later :) but .. flat not meant I didn't do anything right ? hee hee
I want to capture the winter's night ..


It’s all about the quick and easy, I had the idea to make a starry sky with blending tool and I am using several color of distress ink pads, they are tumbled glass,chipped sapphire, dusty concord and black shot. spritzed with pearlized water and purple glimmer mist as well. I added some falling snow using the Sakura gelly roll white pen.

I use a snow die cut from Magnolia DooHickey dies club volume 2 , and I want that big snow also catch the audience so I let it stand alone with gorgeous rhinestone on its center.

okay, that's all from me today :)
Fyi, Magnolia has released a new collection for this Holiday with the title "Waiting for Christmas" who doesn't waiting for Christmas ?? the most wonderful time of the year! Stay tune everyone!

Thank you so much for stopping by and Have a lovely day!

Mid Autumn Wish ..

Hi there!

It's nice to see you again here on my blog post.
Today I want to reveal my freehand painting using Kuretake Gansai Tambi - Japanese traditional water coloring, I jumped over when my friend - Vera, introduced me to this water color and I love love them at the end ..
Since I love to paint for simple scene when I was young, my mind suddenly thought about the beautiful Mid Autumn .. and I just remember the words;

“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
(forgive me I am forget the author of these words)


I am focusing on the lovely Tripping Flower Tilda .. as she is really so beautiful on the Japanese costume! and I wanna tell you that the Mid Autumn for us as Asian mean more than a little .. we have a traditional gathering with family and eat the "Moon Cake" together. We put our WISH for the better weather ahead!
oh yes .. let me ask you to wider the focus, I paint an Autumn scene in Japan for the background, and as I mentioned before I do it with free hand style. I am not a professional painter but I think not have to be perfect on this hobby :)
So, I hope you could still enjoy my painting

Below, I will post some of picture for more detail ..




Those picture show how I enjoy every steps when I color the image, the background and wrapped it out on a design to be a "Mid Autumn Wish"card .. through this card I wish everyone would have a cozy Autumn and enjoy the beautiful of the turning leaves!

Thank you so much to stopping by and read my blog post today .. will see you again soon!

Love, Yulis

would love to entering this on : Midweek Magnolias - Autumn

Gypsy Tilda and Water coloring Background

Hello my lovely readers ..
Today I have a card with a story for share, wish it will bring you some inspiration :)
Once upon a time 
on the starry starry night ..
There was a pretty lady sitting on the wall at the back yard, she brings a crystal ball ..
mmm .. what would she doing ?
She is so fancy with a Gypsy costume :)
and because she wants to give the wisdom wording she copied a quote ..

Do your little bit good where you are,
It's those little bits of good put together that overwhelm
the World!
Gypsy Tilda is from Magnolia latest collection : Pink Lemonade 2014
I color Tilda with some kind of mediums; 
for her skin, hair band and her slippers I use Distress Ink, while for her dress and the wall she sat I color them with Graphitint
I put some glossy accent on her crystal ball to make a dimensional look.
For the words I stamp a sentiment stamp from StampinÚp! with versamark on a vellum and apply Ranger Platinum liquid embossing powder.
Those Bark Butterflies are from Prima marketing.
I have a chance to take a photo when I play with water coloring to make a starry starry night background,
First I apply a masking liquid on my image, I use Winsor and Newton but you sure can use any brand you may found on the store close to you :) I place my image on a mini cutting board with painter tape and start doing the water coloring.
I use Kuretake Gansai Tambi for my background as they are can go well both opaque and transparent and I would say that they are my favorite from now on.
Here the closer look, and I am happy to have them :)
when you can get the 36 colors, they have pearl, silver and gold color also and they were so awesome!
I think that's all from me today, thank you very much for stopping on my blog and I wish to see you again .. bye!!
Love,
Yulis
